Note: the objects that have a green background in the list are above the horizon.

The objects can be sorted in two ways:

  • alphabetically or
  • by ease of viewing (which takes into account the visibility measure and present altitude of the object)

After selecting the object to search, an arrow is shown on the map to guide you towards the target.

In the above image, the arrow indicates that the device needs to be tilted upwards to reach Andromeda.

Also shown are the target's co-ordinates and the delta (Δ) angle between the current position and the target.
